About Jenner Cormier

Jenner Cormier is a beverage professional with 10 years experience in the hospitality industry, training or working in bars in Halifax, Toronto, Europe and the United States. Jenner has acquired skills from bartenders from all corners of the globe by competing in National as well as International (named Canada’s best bartender by winning Diageo World Class Canada 2013, as well as winning Canada’s BOL’s Around The World competition in 2013) bartending competitions. In the summer of 2014, he was chosen and given a scholarship to attend the most extensive BAR training in North America (the only Canadian) that took place in New York City; graduating in the top 1/3 of the class. Jenner has been fortunate to visit dozens of distilleries across the globe from Scotland to Oaxaca. Taking a year off from behind the bar to work for the largest beverage alcohol company in the world with Diageo in 2013 taught him about the brand representation side of the business. Jenner has been involved behind the scenes at the world’s largest cocktail convention at Tales of The Cocktail as an apprentice manager on 5 different occasions in 2 different continents over 4 years has left him with a knowledge base for all things hospitality that very few will ever have the luxury of experiencing. Jenner takes a lot of pride in where he comes from and decided to take the knowledge he has acquired over the past decade to bring something new and exciting back to his hometown, Halifax. The experience of being on opening staff for a handful of the country’s best cocktail bars has helped him to acquire knowledge surrounding implementation of systems early in beverage program development. Acquiring skills in management and hospitality through years in restaurants, and work with Tales Of The Cocktail has allowed Jenner to grow into a beverage professional who values great hospitality as well as memorable experiences.

Wow. The last few weeks have
"Wow. The last few weeks have been a blur. Now that the dust has partially settled and I've had a chance to catch my breath a little, I need to say thank you. Thank you to every single person who helped Annie and I accomplish our dream of opening our own restaurant and bar. You know exactly who you are. THANK YOU. The support that people have shown us in the last few weeks since we've opened the doors is unlike any feeling I've ever experienced in my entire life. I am very grateful to have such loving friends and family; thank you for the text messages, emails, phone calls, gifts, flowers, beer, spirits, high fives and hugs. A MASSIVE thank you goes out to our team at Bar Kismet - front and back of house for following us blindly into this adventure. Without you, your blood, sweat and even a few tears, we could have never made this dream into a reality. You are all legends in my heart. Last and certainly not least, Annie. You are a true inspiration, a humbling force and the most incredible human I've ever met. You motivate me every day to be better at life and at my job. Thank you for everything you do. Much love Let's see where we can take this thing :) 🙏❤️🍽🍸🐟 Photo: @thecoasthalifax"
